NeoGAF made Justin McElroy freak out on twitter, that was fun. I dunno how you guys could hate on a forum that does that.

Is a link to this possible?

NeoGAF is one of the banes of the industry. I truly despise that site; not because of the elitism*, it is instead due to how much that site hurts the entire gaming industry. Alike to Metacritic, people have actually lost jobs due to that forum. Not to mention all of their “leaks” and “sources” which plague the industry on false information and can kill a title before they even start development on it.

Other forums may have more spammers and annoying idiots but at least they can say that their forum hasn’t affected real life jobs. (NeoGAF does still have idiotic users though; in fact while they won’t care to admit, they are an extremely meme-heavy forum).

NeoGAF does have some great things in it and some good, pleasant users (although they are still in the minority) but I hate that site on pure principle and it doesn’t have anything significantly better than other sites to warrant sticking around it and ignoring its faults. My dislike of it is purely on about 1% of it which does that stuff but man is it despicable (along with all other sites which promote such shitty fake leaks and such - I'm looking at you Kotaku) but I can't overcome it for the 99% which are likely just normal human beings who just want to talk about videogames.

*(Which there assuredly is: if Reddit is the closest thing we will ever get to equality on the internet – which I damn sure hope it isn’t, that has problems too – then NeoGAF comparatively has the hierarchy of an Ancient Egyptian dynasty).

i don't know if they had their way mass effect 3 would have had a new ending

Technically, it did get a new ending.

it was extended, not revised

I don't think you understand what a revision is.

Oh look, it's this thread again.

I wonder if you're the only one who posted in this thread who got perma'd over there when you weren't a Junior. I think it's interesting.

Though, yeah, I think this is the third or fourth major thread we've had on Gaf.

I'm also probably one of the only people to get perma'd and not particularly give a shit or think less of the site (not that I hadn't become kind of jaded with the site before it happened), so it all balances out.

@Warchief: Of course they do [edit-- have people betending to be "in the industry"]. They do have legitimate people there in the industry though (as quite a few of them oddly have a link to their NeoGAF username on their Twitter and things). They definitely have less than it is made out to be, but they have enough there that people don't really question it when people say so.

they expanded on what happened further, but the main choices and consequences stayed the same.

@Aegon: I can't, maybe someone else will. The gist is Justin said something on twitter about how games writers shouldn't criticize eachother, Patrick Klepek called him out on it, some GAF posters in some thread ran with it because Justin is one of many hacks writing about games and deserves it.

Turns out Justin has poor self-esteem or something because he spent Father's Day weekend whinging about it on Twitter.

Welp I didn't need to type that, really didn't think anyone would take the time to dig up links gosh.

Everyone knows the protagonist of Persona 4 is Charlie Tunoku just like the female protagonist of Persona 3 is called Charlene and the protagonist for Persona is named Chuck Tuna or as his friends call him Charlie.

Actually, it's perfectly normal for anyone outside of Giant Bomb to give a weird look when they hear him referred to as Charlie.

The effects of the Endurance Run aren't as far-reaching as some would like to think.

The moment you walk through the NeoGAF door you have Ban(Doom in RPGs) cast on you and that timer is just ticking away. lol No thanks.

Hey Neogaf. Let us all settle this debate by offering a peace treaty. Would the Giantbombcast be enough to end this bitter war?

#173 Posted by Arker101 (1474 posts) -

Watching GAF watch us watch them is really freaking me out. GB and GAF are the only two sites I regularly check for video game information, and they both seem to have good communities. Both sites are a bit creepy from time to time (That cannibalism thread for example) but theirs appears to be more spread out. Ours is all focused on the GB crew because we are the GB forums.

Besides, we've got a member who lives on the moon, so we win, suck it GAF.

Also, hello.

Don't they have an expert Yu-Gi-Oh! duelist member? Pretty much the same thing. Also, could say that their "Otrebor Nightmarecoat" dude = our BliffMcBumpkin.

Parallels.

To do that on GB you need to post the HTML block in the editor, like this:

I'm not too active on NeoGaf. There are some great gifs and pictures that give me a good laugh, though. But yeah, like all forums, it's best to avoid getting into flame wars with users.

#183 Edited by algertman (852 posts) -

Why is NeoGAFs obsessed with transgender people?

I also noticed NeoGAF has problems with Mods a lot.

Weekly Japan numbers threads are hilarious. Since NeoGAF is the final outpost of the SDF it's like a race to see how fast they can get conversation away from Vita's numbers every week.

If you lurk GAF long enough, you get used to it. It's an insular community, with may smaller insular communities within it and inside jokes galore. It's my faovirte place on the web.
